Professor Kim Shapiro

Professor and Chair of Cognitive Neuroscience
Head of School

School of Psychology

Professor Shapiro in collaboration with other colleagues published the first paper on the ‘attentional blink’ phenomenon, which has attracted great interest on the part of many scientists. The original publication has been cited over 1000 times and approximately 500 reports on the same topic have followed from it. He employs a wide range of neuroscience approaches and tools in his ...

Dr Stephen Mayhew

Dr Stephen Mayhew

Birmingham Fellow

School of Psychology

Dr Steve Mayhew conducts a lot of simultaneous EEG-fMRI experiments in an effort to better understand the coupling between single-trial variability in electrophysiological and haemodynamic measurements of brain responses, and how interactions between ongoing brain processes and external events are intrinsic to the function of the brain.

Dr Fiona McNab

Research Fellow

School of Psychology

Dr McNab’s main research interest is working memory (WM); the ability to hold information in mind for a short time. She uses fMRI and behavioral studies to investigate the limitations of WM, distraction in WM, how aging affects WM and other cognitive functions, and how WM can be improved with cognitive training.

Professor Chris Miall

Professor Chris Miall

Professor of Motor Neuroscience
College Director of Research

School of Psychology

Professor Miall has been studying sensory motor control for about 30 years, from his PhD in locusts, to crayfish, primates and for most of the 15 years, working on human motor control. He is particularly interested in the role of the cerebellum, in motor learning and in predictive control.

His research team website is: http://prism.bham.ac.uk/index.html

Dr Karen Mullinger

Dr Karen Mullinger

Joint Nottingham and Birmingham Lecturer and Anne McLaren Research Fellow

School of Psychology

Dr Mullinger is an expert in simultaneous EEG-fMRI. She focuses on understanding the sources of the EEG artefacts and how to reduce them at source. Using the best EEG-fMRI techniques available she investigates neurovascular coupling to better understand brain function.
